建筑面积: 7,900平方米
项目类型:美术馆

纽卡斯尔地区美术馆位于纽卡斯尔市民公园的东南角,它是市民和社区集会一个组成部分,同时也是当地充满活力的焦点。建筑意在体会并表达功能的复杂性,并通过清晰的手法将文化和商业
功能结合起来。
建筑的主入口强调了Lamen 街和市民公园的朝向。其在Darby街角上的倾斜,展现了建筑融合街道景观中去的意向。位于Lamen街上的美术馆、街角的美术馆书店和咖啡馆使整个沿街立面活跃
起来,丰富了Darby街上的商业氛围。为保证建筑的整个连续性流线,永久和临时展览区都位于建筑上层(二楼)。

anchoring the south-east corner of newcastle’s civic park, the newcastle region art gallery (nrag) serves simultaneously as a compositional
part of the broader civic and community ensemble, and as a dynamic attractor within its immediate local context. the building seeks to acknowledge
and accommodate the complexity of its functional program, and to combine the cultural and commercial components in a clear and intelligible way.

the building’s main entrance addresses the civic orientation to laman street and the civic park. the oblique corner presence onto darby street announces
the building onto the city’s streetscape. the positioning of gallery functions onto laman street and the prominent corner positioning of gallery bookstore
and cafe creates activated frontages which complement the commercial ones along darby street. the building’s permanent and temporary exhibition galleries
are both located on the upper (first floor) in an arrangement that allows for a continuous circulation pattern through them.
